An athletically gifted, but terminally narcissistic, basketball player whose considerable assets are spoiled by his massive ego. Bryant has never been able to grasp the notion that the great players were made great by their ability to seperate themselves from the dynamics of team basketball, thus allowing them to naturally cultivate whatever abilities in turn immortalized them. Because of this colossal character flaw, Bryant will never help an NBA franchise experience the success of which a Bryant-helmed team would otherwise be capable.
Kobe Bryant just took the buzzer-shot, even though he was being triple teamed, and a polar bear was chewing the flesh off his right foot, and he was eighty-four feet away from the basket. Why didn't he pass the basketball to one of his four ridiculously unguarded teammates?
